Trio for Blunt Instruments is a 1964 collection of three Nero Wolfe novellas by Rex Stout. I'm enjoying these and plan on reading all of the Nero Wolfe books.
from the back of the book:
Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe
A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America's great mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe and entertained -and puzzled- millions of mystery fans around the world. Now with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.
Trouble Comes in Threes
If Nero Wolfe and his sidekick, Archie, would ever admit to an Achilles' heel -which they wouldn't- it would be a weakness for damsels in distress. In these three charming chillers the duo answer the call of helpless heroines with nothing to lose -except their lives.
First a beautiful young Aphrodite comes to Nero looking for a hero -and the answer to the mystery of her father's death.... Then an old flame of Archie's reignites with a plan that may corner him into a lifetime commitment -behind bars.... And finally a detective's work is never done, as a hot tip leads the team into the sizzling center of a sexy scandal that could leave them cold -dead cold.
The stories included:
- Kill Now-Pay Later
- Murder is Corny (which has been adapted for television)
- Blood Will Tell
